Let's keep it real, folks. Life isn't always a bed of roses, and a week without one bad day included is pretty rare. But guess what? You made it to Friday in one piece, andRev Run's social media musings are just the thing to get you into Zen mode for the weekend. Check out a few of our favorite recent @RevRunWisdom posts, then kick back, relax and be happy.
Rev Run at a "Manology" book signing in February.
Enlightenment can come in all shapes and sizes, and Rev Run draws inspiration from all walks of life. From a cuddly cartoon character to a religious minister who iterates the same sentiments as one former "Jersey Shore" housemate's ink, this week's wisdom roundup is chock full of positive reinforcement and proof that motivation is all around us -- you just have to look in the right places.
6-year-old Miley Simmons may have suggested this quote.
Forget everything you've ever heard about Mac Miller's upbringing. It's all one big lie, as we learned from a recent Vine video in which the "Most Dope" star reveals that his real father is actually...Zack Morris?
"My pops!" Mac captioned under a video featuring Mark-Paul Gosselaar on the rapper's flat screen, leaving fans to ponder what made the guy keep such a big secret for so long, and why he's finally coming forward with the truth. It certainly couldn't have been out of shame -- Zack Morris is the coolest!
Now, you obviously can't trust everything you see on the Internet (that is, unless it's on Remote Control), and since the #1 authority on paternity tests, Maury Povich, has better things to do than investigate Mac's family tree (he's got pregnant Siamese twins to interview!), we decided to do our own digging. What we found was shocking.
After a far too long hiatus, Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out" returns July 9 to MTV2! As we await the highly anticipated sketch show comeback, each Throwback Thursday we'll be getting nostalgic about some of the most memorable moments and cast members from the series' first four seasons. We can't think of a better way to utilize the #TBT hash tag!
#TBT: Lil Jon, Nick Cannon and Big Boi wildin' out onstage.
Still, if Lil Jon felt like whipping out his pimp cup and channeling his hit-making days, we have a feeling he'd have no problem working a crowd, like he did seven years ago on "Wild 'N Out." Just look at how much fun Nick Cannon had with him in the photo above!
If we learned anything from last night's "Nitro Circus Live," it's that tricycles are the silent killer of extreme sports. Whether you're a brave tour promoter trying to prove yourself, or a seasoned pro performing for a live crowd, trikes do not discriminate when choosing their victims. Even stuntman Dusty Wygle's not ashamed to admit he's frightened of the three-wheeler, dubbing it the "metal triangle of death." Who'd have thought a toddler's toy could be so terrifying?!
"I get hurt almost every other show on the trikes," Josh Godfrey Roberts confessed. "They're the most deadliest contraptions, and they have no business being on a 50-foot ramp." So, uh, then why don't they stick to their more familiar two-wheelers? Because the fans love it. "However it lands for us, it's always entertaining for the crowd, so we love doing it," he said. Now that's what you call true showmanship!
See how the "Nitro" dudes fared when they gave the trike trick of terror a try (say that five times fast) in the GIFs below!
Put your dukes up! Baby Lopez practices its fighting stance in the womb.
Mario Lopez's second child has been steadily baking in wife Courtney Mazza's oven, but we are still months away from the TV personality and social media master's inevitable status update announcing the bundle of joy's arrival. Until then, we can at least share in the proud papa's journey as he tweets about the baby's progress and shares sonograms with his over 700,000 followers.
"First pic of baby Lopez #2... Thank you @CourtneyMLopez ," Mario posted with the photo above before pondering the baby's gender through a hashtag. Whether boy or girl, one thing's for sure: This kid's gonna be a fighter! Just look at little Lopez flexing for the camera...sorta like its pop did back in the day as wrestling champ A.C. Slater! Let's hope he or she inherits Mario's dimples, too.

When Eric and Jeff Rosenthal agreed to make a guest appearance on "Most Dope," the brothers assumed they'd be rubbing elbows with Mac Miller himself. Instead, they got stuck interviewing Mac's fur coat clad alter ego, Larry Lovestein. Persistence pays off, though, and recently, the duo managed to track down the actual Mac and pick his brain for their show.
In a clip from ItsTheReal's web series, "Rap Lines," Eric and Jeff ask Mac the questions all young hip-hop fans are dying to know, like if it's okay to drop out of school to rap and if you can accurately judge a girl by her ringtone. All appears to be going smoothly, until one fan's question almost knocks the entire interview off-kilter. "My parents say I can do anything I want in life, so I want to be Mrs. Mac Miller," Eric begins, reading "Sarah" from Florida's question. "My parents are totally on board. How can we make this happen? P.S. I'm 14 and I love 'Thrift Shop.'" And the survey says...wrong rapper! "Yeah, I think she's thinking of Macklemore Miller," Eric says. "That's awesome," Mac responds, laughing off the mix-up. Uh oh, we think 14-year-old Sarah just inspired another split personality!

Motorcycles, ATVs, race cars...these types of wheels top the list of dangerous modes of transportation, and no matter your age or expertise, you're taking a risk by riding one. But tricycles? Those are for kids!
As you know, the "Nitro Circus Live" crew is always up for a new kind of thrill, and as it turns out, riding down a steep, narrow ramp at lightning speed using any size wheelswill make you s**t your pants within seconds. Case and point: In this sneak peek of the next episode, Mike Porra, the typically tame (read: NOT a professional athlete) tour promoter, ditches his paperwork to hop on a trike in an attempt to play like the big boys on the Giganta Ramp.
"I'm trying to keep it a secret in case I p**sy out," Porra admits in the clip below. However, producer Jeremy Rowle says the secret's out, and the "Nitro" pros are keeping a close eye on him. "When you're constantly asking people to risk their lives, at some point you have to get the respect of others," he says. "And the only way that you can get that, is if you go and do something stupid yourself." Time to put up or shut up, Mike!
Tiffani Thiessen with her 2-year-old daughter, Harper Renn, and her husband, Brady Smith.
For every "Saved by the Bell" fan, Kelly Kapowski and Jessie Spano are frozen in time as Bayside High's resident teen queens. However, the show ended its run almost 20 years ago, and the actresses behind the peppy cheerleader and caffeine-crazed brainiac are all grown up IRL.
Both Tiffani Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley are moms nowadays, and naturally, they spent yesterday celebrating Mother's Day with their beautiful families. Tiffani -- who's clearly not camera shy -- took advantage of the spring weather and set up a photo shoot in New York City's picturesque Central Park. Meanwhile, Elizabeth tweeted a photo of the thoughtful trinket her own mother gave to her -- a sky blue bracelet outfitted with baby-themed charms -- to honor Elizabeth's first year as a mom to her baby boy, Sky Cole. "Love this gift from my #mommy today for my 1st #mothersday! X," she wrote. Way to nail it, Grandma B!
Recently, MTV News sat down with Mac to, well, watch movies with the sound off, and in the video below, he takes it upon himself to fill the silence of "The Notebook" with his own dirty narration. The most romantic part of the most romantic film EVER quickly spirals into frat house territory after the 21-year-old tries to step into The Gos's shoes. "You need to stop sucking d**k and using your teeth," Noah Mac says. "Well, I took classes, I'm doing the best I can," Allie Mac responds. Annnnnnnnd scene.
Rev Run rocks his trademark Adidas tracksuit and flashes a peace sign on the red carpet.
